Banana Cookies

I bought some Costco bananas.  They get ripe way too quick.  Not in the mood for Banana Bread.  Kent suggested Banana Cookies.   This is a recipe I have had for many years.  I cut it out of the Syracuse Herald Journal newspaper a very long time ago.  Through the years I have made a couple of changes.  Give them a try!!

Banana Cookies

september 002

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1  cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup mashed banana (I use 3 mashed bananas)
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoons vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (We go light on the nutmeg)
1 cup chopped nuts, optional (we don’t add nuts)

1.  I used my stand up mixer.  You could easily mix by hand if you wanted to.  Mix the sugar, brown sugar, mashed bananas, oil,  and vanilla together.
2.  Mix in dry ingredients
3.  Drop by spoonfuls onto parchment lined baking sheet or ungreased baking sheet.
4.  Bake 10-12 minutes.

These always a hit.  And I wasn’t kidding when I said “Simple and Delicious!”
